China Daily | Updated:2017-07-24 07:49A Sina Weibo booth displays at a conference on September 24, 2013 in Beijing. [Photo/dfic.cn]ZHAO HUI is the mayor of Deyang, a city in Southwest Chinas Sichuan province. On Wednesday, he opened a micro blog account under his real name to interact with the public. China.com.cn comments:Many youngsters obtain information and share ideas via micro blogs. And many officials have micro blogs, too. However, the majority of them do not register under their real names. Many simply use the platform to get information. Seldom do any officials use the micro blogs to express their ideas or share their moments.
Zhao is obviously an exception. He not only registered for the micro blog account using his real name, but also issued several micro blogs and interacted with those who commented on them.
Deyang officials say that Zhao opened the micro blog because he hoped to help his city get more support in the China Central Television competition Charming China. He succeeded, because he had already got 30,000 followers by Sunday, many of whom expressed support for Deyang.
A glance at Zhaos micro blogs shows that instead of writing them in a bureaucratic style, he adopts a friendly voice. It is this that has ensured his popularity. The comments under Zhaos micro blogs prove that people welcomed the move. People want to see their mayor living like they do, instead of showing just an official stance.
The trend of officials using social networks is irreversible. If they do not speak online, they might lose the trust of the people. In this sense, Zhao has set a brilliant example to all the officials nationwide and we hope more officials will follow suit.Related StoriesSociety: Woman uses micro blog to talk to dead mumMicro blog closes after nursing mom is criticizedPLA Air Forces micro blog takes offHello China!, PM tells followers on micro-blog accountPLA navy micro blog goes full steam aheadNetizens gobble up watermelon micro blogCartoonsThe era of mobile paymentsWelcome on boardBrexitApproval ratingObesity due to overworkHeat waveMost Viewed in 24 HoursFroum trendsPostnatal confinement: A tradition to follow or abandon?Is life safer in China?ColumnistsJapans aging society prompts redefinition of the term elderlyIts time Japan stopped dreaming TPPForumFeatured ContributorsA railway journey that led to a lifetime storyPresident Xi right to focus on real economyChina Daily Bureau ChiefsChongqing and Chengdu City Cluster on faster trackXi-Ma meeting brings historic opportunitiesStar BloggersThe smartphone – Indispensable to life in ChinaFrom Henan to Princeton: How 14-year-old girl made the journeyBACK TO THE TOPHOMECHINAWORLDBUSINESSLIFESTYLECULTURETRAVELWATCHTHISSPORTSOPINIONREGIONALFORUMNEWSPAPERChina Daily PDFChina Daily E-paperMOBILECopyright 1995 -var oTime = new Date();
